EFREN “Bata” Reyes edged reigning World Pool champion Alex Pagulayan in a thrilling finale, 13-12, Tuesday to take the crown in the ABS-CBN On Cue 3: Continental Challenge billiards tournament at the Galleria Trade Hall of Robinson’s Galleria in Mandaluyong City.

The match between “The Magician” and “The Lion” seesawed until the 25th and final rack, when Pagulayan failed to convert a shot on the 3-ball to allow Reyes to run out the table and claim the $20,000 (P1.1 million) winner’s check.
